All performances in August and September are cancelled

Our goal has been to open the season according to plan, but our most important focus is of course the health and safety of our audience and staff. Since the Swedish government’s prohibition against public gatherings with over 50 people is still in place, the Göteborg Opera’s owner (Region Västra Götaland), board of directors and CEO have decided to cancel all public events until the situation is considered less serious. Currently this applies for performances scheduled during August and September 2020, to the Main and Small stages and the foyer in Gothenburg, our stage in Skövde and tours.

If you have purchased tickets to one of the cancelled performances, you will be contacted by our box office staff as quickly as possible – usually via email.

The sustainable dancer

To help today’s dancers stay injury-free, Liselott Berg, Administrative Manager GöteborgsOperans Danskompani and Katrín Hall, Artistic Director, have initiated a project entitled ‘The Sustainable Dancer’. The aim of the project is to create a sustainable life, both during and after the dance careers.

The idea is to promote a holistic view of dancers; to reduce injuries while strengthening dancers mentally – in short, to help maintain the high quality their profession demands while also staying healthy.
